This is a sculpture by the Icelandic artist, Ólafur Arnalds, which has been torn down and replaced with another
article A giant sculpture by Icelandic artist Óli Arnaldsson has been left for dead at his home in the southern part of Iceland, with its legs raised in protest at a new park.
The sculpture, called The Wind, was originally erected in 2012, at the site of the famous wind farm that was created to power the country’s tourism industry.
The artist was quoted in the local paper as saying: “It’s a very important sculpture, I want it gone, I’m not afraid of it.”
He added: “I’m a very conservative man.
I don’t want to change anything, I just want to keep it as it is.”
The sculpture was originally set to stand for seven years, but has been removed to allow a new design to be put into place, according to the Icelandic news outlet, Aftonbladet.
It was erected on the top of a hill, at a distance of approximately 1,500m (3,400ft), and the sculpture is the tallest in Iceland.
The artists family has said they had hoped to restore the sculpture, which is made from local ash wood.
However, they have said they were unable to get permission to remove it, despite the fact that the country has a population of more than 100 million.
AftonBladet says that it was contacted by the artist’s family, and that the artist has requested the sculpture be removed from its site.
The decision was taken by the island’s municipality, and the decision has been made to restore it, according Aftan, but the artists family is still considering their next steps.
The Wind is part of a collection of Icelandic artworks, and is part the annual Ekstraklasa festival, which runs from August 3 to 15 in Reykjavik.
